to cut a deal. >> now we know the president did reach out to two leading senate republicans john mccain, lindsey graham, invited them to come over to the white house todays on -- today to talk about immigration reform but he wants to talk about sequester these forced budget cuts. what's going on. has that meeting yet taken place? >> reporter: that meeting was scheduled to take place about half hour ago. we were told by the white house that the meeting could cover a range of topics so that could include immigration. these budget cuts. and perhaps other topics that have come up on capitol hill recently. who knows maybe foreign affairs and other issues. so presumably it's going on right now and i'll give you a read out as soon as we have it. >> brief us on what happens. i'm curious to see how much of an effort there was made by the president and these two republican senators to work out a deal, perhaps at least start a negotiation during these final three days to avert these forced spending cuts. >> we were told when the president called john mccain, senator mccain last week that's when th

a bipartisan market-based solution to climate change. like the one john mccain and joe lieberman worked on together a few years ago. but, if congress won't act soon to protect future generations, i will. i will direct -- i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. and four years ago other countries dominated the clean energy market and the jobs that came with it. we've begun to change that. last year wind energy added nearly half of all new power capacity in america. so let's generate even more. solar energy gets cheaper by the year. let's drive down costs even further. as long as countries like china keep going all-in on clean energy, so must we. in the meantime, the natural gas boom has led to cleaner power and greater energy independence. we need to encourage that. that's why my at administration will keep cutting -- my administration will keep cutting red tape and keep speeding up new oil

they were very clean, you know. >> john mccain is not the left. john mccain had real problems with this. >> john mccain is another issue altogether on the subject. i'm not going to go there. i'm just saying, i agree with your point. we haven't heard the other side of this also, chris, which is there's some abu ghraib in "zero dark thirty." and i think coming -- both ways, this is a movie that wasn't going to win it at the end because of the backlash. >> yeah. i think -- i think the academy awards you were saying is really our second great mood ring, like our presidential elections. they really tell us so much about ourselves. they focus on race in the two big movies. "django" and "lincoln." all about slavery. the first time i've ever seen a plantation since "gone with the wind." this was realistic. i thought seth macfarlane brought back the old days of song and dance. and i know i'm old-time on this, but i thought bob hope and johnny carson were fabulous. i know everybody likes billy crystal. he brought back show biz. he really tried. there were over-the-top jokes about getting into lin

senator john mccain that made a reference, some would say a joke, about the iranian president. we'll have more about that. >>> of course, we continue our countdown to the winter olympics. we are going to be not strapping on any spandex. >> there we go. >> any chance to play that video. >> i sound like daffy duck. this morning we're going to get a lesson in curling, no spandex required. >> thank goodness for that. i don't know if you heard but matt and i are headed to chicago on friday for one of our field trips. send us your pictures, tell us what you love about the windy city. use #todaychicago. >>> natalie is standing by with a look at all the headlines. good morning, natalie. >> good morning, matt, al and savannah. good morning, everyone. >>> authorities are searching for possible explosives today in an underground bunker where a school boy was held for seven d days. sheriff wally olson has described the child who has gone home now from the hospital. >> like a breath of fresh air. >> reporter: the kidnapper was also suspected of killing a school bus driver. officials say they used a ca

like these. we have senator john mccain who told a crowd during a town hall in arizona this week specifically concerning immigration reform. here's some of that. >> cut off their welfare, their stuff and they'll go back. [ applause ] >> you're a senator with the federal government. and you're doing nothing about it. you said build the dang fence. where's the fence? >> on the list that i showed you. >> it's not a fence. >> it's not a fence. it's a banana. we put up a banana with about $600 million worth of appropriations. >> the gop is supposed to be shifting on immigration. can republicans really make progress on the issue when you've got one of the main senators on this issue being attacked by his own constituents? >> and this is an issue that definitely has a big impact on the republican party. but what we need to do is see elected officials, republicans and democrats, step up and not worry about being primaried and do what's right. the fact is that we need to have a path for citizenship. we need to see a reform in immigration. we should simply do it without worrying about extr

john mccain, have made similar statements to what scott said. your republican governor, along with other governors around the country, have said they want congress to stop the sequester, to stop these cuts. but i just have to be honest with you, there are too many republicans in congress right now who refuse to compromise even an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes and special interest tax breaks. and that's what's holding things up right now. keep in mind nobody's asking them to raise income tax rates. all we're asking is to consider closing tax loopholes and deductions that the speaker of the house, john boehner, said he was willing to do just a few months ago. he said there were a bunch of loopholes and deductions you could close. said you could raise 800 billion, a trillion dollars by closing loopholes. we're not even asking for that t much. all we're asking is that they close loopholes for the well off and the well connected, for hedge fund managers, for oil companies or corporate jet owners who are all doing very well and don't need these tax loopholes so we can

-- the presiding officer: the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: i will just respond to my friend -- and he is my dear friend. i didn't note that sense of urgency for three months when john tower's nomination was held in limbo by the then majority of democrats. the secretary of defense post was vacant at that time as well. so this is not the first time in history that a secretary of defense's position has been vacant. the and, again, i hope that we can get this resolved, moved forward, and i think that the senator from michigan and my friend understands that we can get this issue resolved on the day that we return from the recess. certainly there is, i believe, sufficient votes to invoke cloture at that time. mr. levin: madam president, if the senator -- the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. mr. levin: if the senator from arizona would yield for a minute -- and he is my dear friend -- i don't believe that senator tower was filibustered. there was a delay in et going to that vote. but i don't believe there was a requirement that there be -- and i may be wrong on this -- but i don't bel
